Asian Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is surgery that includes repairing droopy eyelids by removing excess skin, muscle and fat. As you age, your eyelids stretch, and the muscles supporting them weaken. As a result, excess fat may gather above and below your eyelids, causing sagging eyebrows, drooping upper lids and bags under your eyes. Besides making you look older, severely sagging skin around your eyes can impair your peripheral or side vision. Blepharoplasty can reduce or eliminate such impaired vision.

Not only is Dr. Chen is highly experienced in the relatively common Caucasian blepharoplasty but he has specialized in Asian blepharoplasty as well as during his time in Shanghai, China doing Oculofacial Plastic Surgery.

Asian blepharoplasty is also known as double eyelid surgery where the skin around the eye is reshaped. Half of Asians have a “single eyelid” resulting in a narrow eye aperture. The Asian blepharoplasty procedure creates a double upper eyelid with a well-defined crease. The resulting benefit is both cosmetic and medical by opening up the aperture of the eye. Similar to regular blepharoplasty, the surgery results in creating a look of alertness and beauty for patients.

Asian eye surgery is a specialized cosmetic surgery that calls for an eye plastic surgeon who has helped many people achieve great Asian eye surgery results by understanding that treatment needs vary on an individual basis

Asian Blepharoplasty

Blepharoplasty is usually done on an outpatient basis. To help decide if blepharoplasty is right for you, find out what you can realistically expect, and take time to explore the benefits and risks of blepharoplasty.


You might consider blepharoplasty if drooping or sagging eyelids keep your eyes from opening completely or pull your lower eyelids down. Removing excess tissue from your upper eyelids, lower eyelids or both can improve vision and make your eyes appear younger and more alert. Blepharoplasty may be an option if you have:

  • Baggy or puffy upper eyelids
  • Excess skin of the upper eyelid that interferes with your vision
  • Droopy lower eyelids, which may cause white to show below the iris (colored part of the eye)
  • Excess skin on lower eyelids
  • Bags under your eyes
